The majority of the course is practical and involves group participation. Practice during the class involves touching and being touched. You will be required to demonstrate to the tutor that you are physically able to perform set first aid tasks. If you are unable to perform first aid for the tutor to assess competency, then you may not meet the requirements for the First Aid Certificate.
If you have any disabilities or illness, which you feel may affect your performance during the course, please contact the St John office where you registered to discuss this prior to the course commencement date. If you do not know the St John office where you have registered you can call 0800 FIRST AID (0800 347 782)
